12:24:49 Jon Chaikittirattana : @mgalindo...What would the message be? how will it be done in?
12:24:52 JoseR : Best table to be at @angela
12:25:04 mgalindolausd : What if these habits were sustained every time administrators, teachers and parent came together?
12:25:07 Jon Chaikittirattana : @angela our table is the best.
12:25:13 JValdez : They will use a purple 3x5 card to write any reflections they may have for the ED21 team to look at later
12:25:34 Jon Chaikittirattana : @mgalindo, sustainability is key to everything...
12:25:35 JValdez : Discussion amongst the tables as begun
12:26:13 angela maiers : I teach schools to take these skills through a 3 step process NAME IT, CLAIM IT, SUSTAIN IT
12:26:18 JoseR : Back to some table talk.
12:26:19 NV27 : technology, technology, technology!
12:26:30 JoseR : so what's the quesition again?
12:26:31 JValdez : The table next to me is discussing how one teacher poses questions for her students to keep them engaged
12:26:37 David : TECNOLOGY!!!
12:26:59 kgreen5 : Must leave for daughter's soccer game now thanks ... I'll try to learn something at soccer too =)
12:27:03 JValdez : In addition, the use of technology to do things that in earlier years were not done, like online shopping.
12:27:13 Jon Chaikittirattana : @Jose how? why? what ifs?
12:27:23 slam : 21st century classroom thinking is from the students, the classroom is less structured
12:27:23 mgalindolausd : At our table we are talking about comfort table and being afraid of change
12:27:42 kapil : some great discussion going on here in this room, but i can't copy paste some words of wisdom from this java chat on . any help ?
12:27:52 angela maiers : Safe is risky when we, our students, our leaders get too comfortable...we are not growing
12:28:21 liamodonnell : agree technology is key, but constructing learning must be at the heart even it the tech is a pencil and paper
12:28:22 JoseR : Hi Kapilll.. so as a global collaborator what skills are you all learning in India?
12:28:22 angela maiers : Change is the only constant
12:28:29 Jon Chaikittirattana : @mgalindo...it's basic human nature to be reluctant to change...
12:28:31 NV27 : we are discussing human interaction in the 21st century
12:28:46 NV27 : Much is done via technology
12:28:59 NV27 : texting, chatting
12:29:03 angela maiers : Successful learners embrace change, they anticipate it, they are ready
12:29:12 Jon Chaikittirattana : how can we let everything outside of a school change while us inside of a school not change?
12:29:41 JoseR : Open your classroom doors @Jon Literally... or virtually
12:29:59 slam : Our table's question: Aren't we transitioning into the 21st century?
12:30:05 angela maiers : @Jon exactly...would we tolerate that with any other profession what if doctors stayed comfortable, what if dentist pulled teeth with pliers...cause they always have done it that way
12:30:09 Jon Chaikittirattana : @joseR...true.
12:30:15 armen013 : Idea
12:30:20 slam : Are there elements of the 20th century still existing in the classroom?
12:30:29 Jon Chaikittirattana : @angela probably not...
12:30:35 javiernavarro7 : hi guys, any people from NM?
12:30:38 NV27 : we need to understand how students are learning/interacting outside of the class to prepare ourselves to teach them in the classroom
12:30:48 Jon Chaikittirattana : @slam...unfortunately yes.
12:30:59 Jon Chaikittirattana : NM? new mexico?
12:31:13 JoseR : I feel like the dentist myself.... First thing admins do is check your bulletin boards.. well I have news for y'all the new bulletin boards are blogs, wikis, podcasts. youtube and the like
12:31:24 NV27 : Most of our classrooms are totally 20th century!
12:31:29 kapil : @joseR i am a budding teacher now. teachers on an average get a salary of $200$300/month here. so most good people are not interested in becoming teachers in schools. and all teachers training programmes is still following pedagogy of 1960's which is scary for me. 21 century skills we have a lot of distance to cover
12:31:31 terin : brian here is from there
12:31:36 angela maiers : @Jose WOW!
12:31:37 liamodonnell : @slam most definitely yes desks/tables, 1 to many knowledge flow, chalkboard on wall, etc all 20c concepts
12:31:50 NV27 : It is difficult to implement 21st century learning in the class when the tools to do so are not available
12:31:53 David : we need to make the classroom a more 21st century environment!!
12:31:55 armen013 : Idea: technology puts the entire world at kid's fingerttips.
12:32:03 Jon Chaikittirattana : @JoseR...how do we combat that issue?
12:32:16 slam : @david defibiteky!
12:32:21 slam : definitely
12:32:29 Servando.Ortega : @NV27, is it really the tools that hold is back or the skills we shoud promote.
12:32:31 JoseR : @jon.. start one teacher at a time and spread the bug. like wildfire
12:32:35 Jon Chaikittirattana : @nv27 very true
12:32:56 angela maiers : I think a starting place is to get teachers exposed and familiar with conversations like these
12:33:00 mgalindolausd : Our culture in education has been that we didn't have to change. How do we bridge the gap and create the urgency or have others understand the urgency? Are we sometimes silent about our needs and willing to accept the conditions we are currently in?
12:33:08 kapil : @jon pick one good teacher who appreciates this
12:33:32 JValdez : We are back...Mr. Wiswell is transitioning to ED21 Talk #2
12:33:38 angela maiers : A team of connected, passionate teachers can be a powerful spreading fire!
12:33:39 liamodonnell : @joser true when other teachers see u using tech in the class many respond by trying it themselves
12:33:55 slam : our table was also discussing how important it is to make technology a part of the classrom
12:33:58 slam : *classroom
12:34:07 JoseR : Well....
12:34:13 slam : in this era, technology is as important as a teacher's guide
12:34:21 JValdez : Ms. Lomheim will take about what it means to be a teacher and waht it means tro teach
12:34:35 kapil : how do we define technology ? web 2.0, mobile, whiteboards, LMS
12:34:41 kblomheim : my daughter! i'm a proud momma
12:35:01 Jon Chaikittirattana : be proud momma...
12:35:09 JoseR : Hacienda La Puente school district is in Southern California. they are pretty cutting edge with 11 laptop programs beginning in 7th gradeis pretty
12:35:14 angela maiers : @kblomheim she is your daughter?
12:35:14 JValdez : Congratulations Ms. Lomheim
12:35:17 kblomheim : thank you...she's a great teacher!
12:35:26 angela maiers : WOW you should be sooo proud!
12:35:28 kblomheim : yep!
12:35:28 armen013 : Is the narrow focus of standards and API growth selfdefeating in the longrun? Does the educational floor become a ceiling, without links to growth questions?
12:35:44 liamodonnell : @kapil pencils are technology too it's all how you use it are they creating or copying?
12:36:01 liamodonnell : ty for showing screen!
12:36:04 angela maiers : are the slides available anywhere?
12:36:09 Jon Chaikittirattana : @liamodonnell...very true.
12:36:11 angela maiers : now I see
12:36:18 JoseR : @lia darn you are soooooo right
12:37:10 mgalindolausd : Great point about standards and API. But what is out responsibility to change that or are we silent and just accept it?
12:37:22 JValdez : Ms. Lomheim is discussing the need to Acknolwledge your Root of Creativity.
12:37:22 Servando.Ortega : This is great. She is looking at learning differently. Student centered vs. teacher centered and making learning relevant to her students through the use of technology.
12:37:29 Jon Chaikittirattana : @angela after conference @ ed21online.com
12:37:29 JoseR : @angela after the conference the slides and videos of speakers will be available at http://ed21online.com 
12:37:34 JoseR : Hi Terri
12:37:41 Jon Chaikittirattana : hi terri, where are you joining us from?
12:38:02 angela maiers : @Jose Thanks so much!
12:38:04 liamodonnell : very true re edu philosophy if can't define it, you gotta rethink why you're in the classroom imho
12:38:12 jackiegerstein : All of this participatatory technology has reengaged my passion for learning and bring the technology and passion into my own classrooms
12:38:27 mgalindolausd : Awesome question. What do teachers believe in? Administrators? Does each Teacher and Adm have a vision?
12:38:41 angela maiers : I love this analogy! It makes so much sense!
12:38:48 Jon Chaikittirattana : How has the role of a teacher changed?
12:38:59 kapil : david warlick says teachers have to be super learners
12:39:00 liamodonnell : @jackiegerstein very cool! students will feel that excitement too
12:39:03 JValdez : Ms. Lomheim "What happens when students have more access to technology than educators?
12:39:38 angela maiers : Schools have vision statements, but aligning your actions to your vision is difficult. Excellence is what you do everyday
12:39:53 mgalindolausd : Do we encourage other to have a vision? Do we encourage our students to have a vision? Great point about students having more access to technolgt than we do.
12:40:20 liamodonnell : @jValdez when kids have more access to tech, then true constructive edu can begin student becomes teacher, teacher becomes student
12:40:24 mgalindolausd : DO we accept the current reality or take action on that need?
12:40:32 Servando.Ortega : I think our studens are far ahead than most of us with the use of technology. We need to connect their learning with the tools that they are very familiar with.
12:40:37 Jon Chaikittirattana : Ms. Lomheim mentioned that teacher roles include connecter, mentor, advocate, and researcher.
12:40:38 armen013 : Organize a space for human interaction and learning, and questions.
12:40:42 angela maiers : I ask teachers ofter: Are you the model learner that you wish your teachers to be? Are you the lead learner in your classroom?
12:41:02 kblomheim : Good question angela
12:41:10 JaniceS : He also has facebook and twitter accounts, with a whitehouse Youtube channel
12:41:12 angela maiers : Great questions? Do students have a voice? How do they know they are heard?
12:41:15 looking : having a voice in the classroom is huge
12:41:30 kblomheim : Voice is essential...it validates them
12:41:31 Jon Chaikittirattana : @Angela...I have to remember that question...
12:41:33 liamodonnell : pleeaasse cameraperson show us more of her visuals
12:42:07 liamodonnell : thank you! :)
12:42:09 JaniceS : You got it
12:42:13 mgalindolausd : Something to think about. would we put our children in our own classrom or school or district?
12:42:27 terin : i'd like to see some of the things her kids are doing
12:42:30 angela maiers : Literacy is and can be transformational it is not an assignment literacy is opportunity!
12:42:41 Jon Chaikittirattana : @mgalindo...great question...what does everybody think about that?

12:43:21 Jon Chaikittirattana : I would send my child to the public schools in my neighborhood...
12:43:42 liamodonnell : Eggers' TED talk is great: http://tinyurl.com/eggersted 
12:43:46 angela maiers : There are so many sites that publish student work Flickr, Slideshare, Realebooks, BLogs

12:44:16 Servando.Ortega : @mgalindolausd. I would. I have my student in the Cypress School District. We are so more ahead than a affluent school. Our students are succeeding eventhought they face more challenges than other students in other school districts.
12:44:23 jackiegerstein : http://teachingwithted.pbwiki.com/DaveEggers%3AOnceUponASchool

12:47:38 JoseR : Back to table talk

12:51:44 JoseR : Not sure.. Good question @terri.
12:52:12 mgalindolausd : Do we really connect with others or just let them know how we feel?
12:52:16 Servando.Ortega : @Jose R, we are the vechicles that are going to make the shift from 20st century learning to the 21st century learning?
12:52:25 JoseR : What does it mean to have my child in her classroom? What does it mean to have my child in public education? Should there be a difference?

12:54:48 JValdez : Dr. Montes will speak on 21st century "Real World"
12:54:53 angela maiers : Best interview question for new teachers hired: Tell me something that you learned lately? Describe that expereince, and how you will use that in your classroom?
12:55:08 JoseR : Jill says Hi MOM @kblomheim

12:58:16 Jon Chaikittirattana : hi dbillet...where are you joining us from?
12:58:29 angela maiers : Welcome @dbillet
12:58:35 mgalindolausd : Dr Montes said he loveswhat he does? How many of us can say that? Or what parts of what we do do we really ove? Isn't that where passion is or where it starts?
12:58:43 JaniceS : David is in the house. (@dbillett)
12:59:24 Jon Chaikittirattana : @mgalindo...absolutely
12:59:39 JaniceS : Exactly @mgalindolausd. It's important to have passion for what we do. It's what we want for our students.
12:59:43 JoseR : HI Sguzman
12:59:46 Terri : We need to establish an environment where our teachers and administrators can teach and learn from each othe

13:01:19 angela maiers : Same 21st Century Habits and Attitudes (I call them Habitudes!) adaptability, curiosity, imagination, colaboration, courage,,,,
13:01:42 kblomheim : my passion is snuffed out when my time is limited and I am stressed. I am much more passionate f I can slow down, think and share. Sometimes there is way too much to do ... honestly, there times when the tasks take the prioroty rather than the passion
13:02:00 angela maiers : The Habitudes cross content areas, grades, worlds, and professions
13:04:04 angela maiers : We make those same assumptions about academic and intellectual health
13:04:15 angela maiers : Hi Melinda!
13:04:23 JaniceS : Those who are watching the stream, is it still streaming okay?
13:04:32 angela maiers : @janice

13:10:49 angela maiers : Do we challenge ourselves, our colleagues, our students to be excellent?
13:10:56 joser : Hi Jill is wifi back on?
13:11:06 jlomheim : yes
13:11:10 joser : cool
13:11:58 Terri : Now more than ever, we are going to have to utilize 21st century thinking, imagination, passion, etc. to overcome the fiscal crisis to do what needs to be done for our students and adult learners!
13:12:03 joser : hi terr
13:12:09 looking : I am a schoolist
13:12:27 Terri : Hi Jose!
13:12:51 joser : Jeff Utecht just shared recently that we have to build value with what we have... and sometimes we only have eachother
13:14:02 angela maiers : when kids know you care, will give your all, will learn with them...they will let you take them to the moon!
13:14:08 joser : Hi jon
13:14:27 Jon Chaikittirattana : @joser glad to be back.
13:15:03 joser : @angela and back..
13:15:15 sguzman : How do you get people to reflect on their practice?
13:15:33 jlomheim : you ask them specific questions and you engage them in their passions.
13:16:13 sguzman : What if their passion is not their practice?
13:16:30 joser : @jill yep. hit the nail on the head
13:16:51 jlomheim : when you ask them others what they do well, you will be amazed at how much people want to be listened to. By verbalizing their ideas thoughts, one is actually "reflecting".
13:17:12 jlomheim : I meant to say.. when you ask others...
13:17:18 joser : and meeting everybody where they are at..
13:17:22 jvaldez : Dr. Montes' Keys to Success= Zebras and Horses, Don't be Charlie Brown's Teacher, Develop your own Expertise, and Ganas!(desire)
13:17:32 jlomheim : very true
13:17:36 jackiegerstein : Becoming a reflective practitioner is often difficult for many Like to use http://vccslitonline.vccs.edu/mrcte/brookfield.htm 
13:17:54 Terri : It's critical to be present as a listener, so you can build on what they're saying. Perhaps you'll activate their passion.
13:18:06 jlomheim : When we reflect, we have to be honest and it can "hurt"!!!
13:18:17 joser : @jvaldez.... Well if I am charlie brown's teacher, what can I do today to reach my students
13:18:27 sguzman : What is the difference between reflection and sharing?
13:18:43 jvaldez : Dr. Montes has finished his talk, mr. Wiswell back on stage
13:18:47 joser : reflecting is remembering what you shared
13:18:52 jlomheim : A huge difference between reflection and sharing
13:19:21 jackiegerstein : @@Terri I say that teachers need to SEE every student
13:19:26 slam : reflection is personal, sharing is public you won't always admit in public what you would to yourself
13:19:37 jlomheim : Right on SLAM
13:19:41 jvaldez : Mr. Wiswell has begun transition to Table Talk/ Online Chatting
13:19:49 joser : slam bring it on!!!
13:20:11 jackiegerstein : http://www.theworldcafe.com/ 
13:20:13 angela maiers : What if our classrooms were world cafes
13:20:32 joser : 2min share...
13:20:35 mrsdurff : why aren't they? what are the obstacles?
13:21:11 jvaldez : Mr. Wiswell has asked everyone to stand up and share their view in a circle on what 21st Century Learners in the "Real World" looks like.
13:21:26 angela maiers : TEachers create conditions based on what they value if they do not see the value of refection, sharing, collaboration....content will remain king
13:21:37 jvaldez : Converstion is currenlty taking place in groups.
13:22:00 jlomheim : real conversations! yahhh
13:22:38 Terri : jackiegerstein: You're absolutely correct. This is what successful educators do. I have admins. who are conferencing with each and every student in their school to make a personal connection. They have learned incredible things about their students more than they ever anticipated. They are also modeling this strategy for their teachers.
13:23:19 mrsdurff : hi dbillett
13:23:25 joser : As in real conversations... may look different as we move into the new millenium... but the convesations at it's root probably very similar to what our ancestors shared around the campfire 10,000 of thousands years ago
13:23:46 mrsdurff : coversations are chaotic
13:24:07 mrsdurff : not from one source (teacher) and not linear
13:24:16 joser : @durff isn't chaos a good thing every once in a while?
13:24:27 mrsdurff : i love chaos
13:24:31 dbillett : Dr. Montes mentioned private siphoning from public huge in public ed and that discussion is not really on the table when talking about reform in ed
13:24:35 mrsdurff : notice i am at ETT
13:24:38 angela maiers : Yes Jose that is why I love the ROOT analaogy there has always been and will always be an innate need to connect, share, and find our "group" the tools just add new possibilites
13:25:06 angela maiers : @Durff out of chaos come clarity
13:25:21 jackiegerstein : @Terri students should do much more of the conversing than teachers
13:25:51 mrsdurff : out of chaos new connections are made
13:26:09 mrsdurff : the learning is in the connection gsiemens
13:26:34 jackiegerstein : .@durff like the analogy of neuron connections
13:26:58 angela maiers : @Durff it is all about connections!
13:27:11 mrsdurff : indeed

13:51:56 kapil : purpose of education is to get get good job, learn good english, be a responsible citizen , have a great "content digestive system" to score good grades and not asking difficult questions to yourself and follow the path which most people are following
13:52:40 jvaldez : Mr. Castillo What if an organization had no leader?
13:53:08 jvaldez : Mr. Castillo I have titles but we all lead. We are all leaders
